               === No. 12 South Carolina avoids upset, downs UCF ===
 
 Orlando,  FL (Sports  Network) -  Mike Davis  rushed for  167 yards  and three
 touchdowns as the 12th-ranked South Carolina Gamecocks roared back to down UCF
 28-25 after a dismal first half.
 
 UCF  (3-1)  took an  early 10-0 lead,  but conceded 28  straight points in the
 second half to give South Carolina (3-1) the lead.
 
 Dylan  Thompson took over at quarterback for Connor Shaw, who suffered a right
 shoulder  sprain on  South Carolina's first drive of the game. Thompson rushed
 for  a  touchdown  and  completed  15-of-32  passes  for  261  yards  with  an
 interception.
 
 Bruce Ellington led the receiving corps with 88 yards on four receptions.
 
 Blake  Bortles threw  for 358 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions,
 while Rannell Hall caught two touchdowns with 142 yards.
 
 Storm  Johnson dove into the end zone from a yard out to give UCF an early 7-0
 lead.  Johnson's  run capped off  a 75-yard drive  that included a 19-yard run
 from Bortles.
 
 Shaw  hurt his  shoulder when he landed awkwardly following a fumble. Terrance
 Plummer hit Shaw to force the fumble while Brandon Alexander recovered it. UCF
 took over at their own 36.
 
 After an 18-yard completion to Jeff Godfrey, UCF moved up 15 more yards due to
 a  personal  foul on Brison Williams.  Shawn Moffit drove a field goal through
 the uprights from 27 yards out to give UCF a 10-0 edge.
 
 South  Carolina  punter Tyler Hull mismanaged  a high snap and only punted the
 ball  four yards to  give UCF good field position with under five minutes left
 in  the second quarter. Three plays later, Victor Hampton jumped in front of a
 receiver to pick off Bortles.
 
 Thompson  hit a wide open Ellington for 22 yards to UCF's 28-yard line with 26
 seconds  left in the half. After two incompletions, a 15-yard penalty took the
 Gamecocks  out of field goal position. Thompson was picked off by Sean Maag to
 end the half.
 
 Mike  Davis  broke loose for  a 53-yard touchdown run  to start off the second
 half.
 
 On the next Gamecocks' drive, running back Brandon Wilds fumbled after getting
 tripped  up. Clayton Geathers recovered the fumble on South Carolina's 47-yard
 line. Wilds suffered a left elbow sprain on the play.
 
 Thompson  then lobbed the  football 38 yards down the field to Damiere Byrd to
 place  the Gamecocks at the UCF 4. After two runs from Davis, Thompson ran the
 ball into the end zone to give South Carolina the lead.
 
 Next  series,  UCF tried  a trick play  but South Carolina  sniffed it out and
 forced  another interception.  Bortles tossed  the ball  back to  Godfrey, who
 lobbed the ball across the field setting up an easy pick for Jimmy Legree.
 
 Ellington's 19-yard reception drove South Carolina to the UCF 20. Davis eluded
 several  tackles and  carried a UCF defender  on his back into the end zone to
 give the Gamecocks a 21-10 lead early in the fourth quarter.
 
 Bortles  fumbled the ball after getting hit on the next drive. The ball popped
 loose  and  a diving Gerald  Dixon came up with  the ball. After four straight
 touches,  Davis ran  the ball  in from  13  yards out  to extend  the lead  to
 28-10.
 
 Hall  caught  a pass over the  middle and took the  ball up the sideline for a
 73-yard touchdown. J.J. Worton caught the ball in the back of the end zone for
 a  successful two-point conversion cutting the South Carolina lead down to ten
 points.
 
 After  forcing a  punt, Worton returned the  ball 35 yards to give the Knights
 good  field position  at South Carolina's 35-yard line, but Bortles underthrew
 a receiver and was picked off by T.J. Hollorman.
 
 Turnovers  proved to be costly again. Thompson connected with Jerell Adams for
 45 yards before Davis fumbled the ball after a hard hit from Michael Easton at
 UCF's  five-yard line. Breshard Perrimen hauled in a catch over the middle for
 79 yards to set up a seven-yard touchdown catch by Hall.
 
 UCF  attempted  the onside  kick, but  Ellington recovered it  to help end the
 game.
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 South  Carolina  extended  its  streak  to  18  straight  regular-season  wins
 against  non-conference opponents ... South Carolina leads the all-time series
 4-0 ... Each team had four turnovers.
